Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller are set to do battle in the main event of tonight's (Wednesday July 16, 2014) UFC Fight Night 45. In quite a tough match of evenly talented and well rounded veterans, it really is an intriguing meeting between 'Cowboy' and Miller. Will it be the aggressive clinch work and takedowns of Miller, or Cerrone's precise striking and submissions from the back that win the day? We've seen both men climb to great heights in the past, and often stumble at the penultimate hurdle. Tonight...

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has been locked in quite a heated battle with number one contender Chad Mendes recently. Rather uncharacteristically, 'Scarface' recently blasted 'Money' for PED use, after Mendes had fired the first shot against the champ by saying he was 'fragile'. Mendes then gave a witty comeback over Twitter, telling the champion to kiss his belt goodbye. Seemingly on a warpath over Aldo's injury causing the postponement of UFC 176, 'Money' appeared on Sherdog Radio, attempting to...

On Tuesday (July 15, 2014), in his weekly chat with the promotion’s interview feature “The Download,” UFC President Dana White discussed a number of different subjects, including Nate Diaz, Floyd Mayweather, and Ronda Rousey. Regarding Nate Diaz, the UFC’s president took the lightweight fighter to task for his Twitter remarks of yesterday (July 14, 2014), when Diaz made an off-color  remark about fellow 155 pound fighter Donald Cerrone and the “Cowboy” performing an...

Floyd Mayweather is one of the greatest boxers the sport has ever known. Indeed, with a professional record of 46 – 0 and numerous world titles to his name, “Pretty Boy” could very well be the greatest boxer of all time. However, in the world of MMA, Mayweather pulls little respect for how his boxing might fare against an MMA fighter. To the point, UFC President Dana White has openly mused about his belief that women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey would beat Mayweather in a fight. Specifically,...

Ranked at No. 5 following his knockout win over Gray Maynard at last November’s The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 Finale, UFC lightweight Nate Diaz found himself in prime bargaining position despite the fact that he had lost his previous two bouts to Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson. A litany of interesting challenges was potentially on the horizon for Diaz, but he instead chose to ask for his release from the UFC when he decided they weren’t paying him nearly enough for his services. He was removed...

Countdown To Metamoris 4: Chael Sonnen vs. Andre Galvao

Posted on July 15, 2014, 09:46 AM by Mike Drahota
MMA veteran Chael Sonnen created a media windfall by failing two NSAC-mandated drug tests before his ruined UFC 175 bout with Wanderlei Silva (or Vitor Belfort, it doesn’t really matter at this point), prompting him into an early retirement after his beloved testosterone-replacement therapy (TRT) was banned earlier this year. “The American Gangster” was also axed from his solid position as UFC on FOX analyst, basically signaling the end of his Octagon tenure. But that doesn’t mean that...

Posted on July 14, 2014, 10:02 PM by Brian Cox
Alistair “The Demotion Man” Overeem has an important fight coming up this September 5, 2014, when he takes on Ben Rothwell at UFC Fight Night (UFN 50): Souza vs. Mousasi, in Ledyard, Connecticut. The former Strikeforce heavyweight champion and 15 year veteran of the sport, burst onto the UFC’s stage in December of 2011, when he dispatched former division champion Brock Lesnar by way of first round TKO at UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem.

He’ll carry the weight of the entire Irish nation on his shoulders, but if his brash trash talk and confident fighting style are any indication, that’s exactly what ‘Notorious’ wants.
